Section 106 and CIL

The council can enter into a Section 106 agreement, otherwise known as a 'planning obligation', with a developer where it is necessary to provide contributions to offset negative impacts caused by construction and development.

Examples of contributions range from the provision of affordable homes and new open space to funding of school places or employment training schemes.

The developer will either implement these or make payments to the council for them to be carried out. All Section 106 agreements must be relevant to the development they relate to.

The council and planning applicants can use the Section 106 Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to guide negotiations for Section 106 planning contributions. Contributions may be required before planning permission can be granted.

Get involved in Section 106 planning obligations

Members of the public have the opportunity to make representations to the planning authority for each planning application.

Representations often include suggestions by members of the public for projects which may mitigate the impact of a new development on an area.

People living and working adjacent to a development site will receive a letter from us at the start of the planning application process detailing who they can contact if they wish to make representations.

Southwark Council has set up community infrastructure project list (CIPL) to help indentify the local infrastructure needed to support growth. To submit any ideas for local community infrastructure projects please e-mail planning enquiries.
